Re: All Relatives missing siblings

I think it is because the parents and siblings of the spouse of the diagram root person are not blood relatives of that root person and therefore it is right that they should not appear on an all relatives diagram. I think that adding an extra diagram is the only way to show them also.

Re: Map window address bar

Thanks to all for the replies. I don't use the map feature often but recently I saw the location slot on the map screen and wondered what it was for.
I will leave it to Calico to fix.

Lorna & Mike,

Spouse display options

Re: Mark Never Married on Diagram

Thanks Mike. I have seen what you mention but you can only use that method if the person has a family record. You cannot use it for someone who has never married/had a partner and therefore has no family record. I have several wills made by women who still retained their maiden name and identified t...

Help please. The image is from the parish register of Newbottle Northants. The marked entry is for the burial of Agnes Dormer wife of Peter Dormer but I need help to determine the date. I believe it to be 9th June but am unsure of the year. I think it may be 1536 (but I got 1544 from the register tr...

Mark Never Married on Diagram

I seem to remember that on earlier versions of FH there was a facility to mark a person on a diagram as "never married". I cannot remember how to find this facility and am wondering if it still exists on version 6. I have found the count of children attribute and the "no offspring&quo...

Re: Device Drivers for Windows 8 or 10

I can now report that thanks to John's kind help I am now able to use my scanner. The problem was, and I may not have the correct terminology, that I had not linked an image viewing programme to the scan button. Once I did that the scanner worked.
So thanks very much John.

Re: Device Drivers for Windows 8 or 10

Update.
John sent me a copy of his driver [thanks John] but it did not work with my computer. I have now re-installed the XP driver so that I can at least use the scanner for scans to PDF.
Thanks everyone for you help.

Re: Device Drivers for Windows 8 or 10

Well I have had a reply to my enquiry from Canon.
There is no Win 8.1 driver for the Lide 25. The reply gives a few general reasons why this could be; eg expected service length of the product, technical or commercial considerations etc.

Re: Device Drivers for Windows 8 or 10

I have looked at the VueScan software but have decided that the easiest way is to manage without a scanner as I rarely used it. If it becomes a problem I shall buy a new scanner [but not a Canon] for not much more than the price of VueScan.

Re: Device Drivers for Windows 8 or 10

Thanks for your suggestions folks.
I am currently running 8.1 so that is 64 bit. I have tried the Canon site for Lide 25 driver for 8.1 and the result is zero. I have previously tried the Win 7 64 bit driver and have just tried it again without success.
Next I shall try the VueScan software.

Device Drivers for Windows 8 or 10

It maybe that hardware manufacturers do not bother to create Win 10 drivers for all of their products. A while ago I upgraded from Win xp to Win 8.1 only to find that Canon have not produced a driver for my Canon scanner, which renders it useless. I have an older HP printer, but in that case HP have...
